The Shape of the Day with Cathey Capers
The rise and fall of a day is something given to us even in the most disruptive of times. Learn how a simple awareness of the progress and spirits of the day can hold us in a balanced and grateful posture. We will share examples of how to recognize those opportunities within your own day to bring your awareness to the larger stage on which we all act.
Cathey Capers, M.Ed, enjoys offering learning opportunities in contemplative practices that foster renewal, as well as poetry circles that focus on healing and connection with self, others and the “Secret One” within.
Katie Raver on Reducing Screen Time Fatigue & Strengthening Your Sacred Awareness
Join Katie Raver for an hour of renewal, stories, and fun easy techniques for dealing with all this abundance of screen time. Maybe your version of Sacred Awareness is that still, small voice within, or your highest calling, or your connection to the Divine, or the healing energy of Love, or the quiet between words, or something else entirely. However you experience your connection to all that is… You don’t have to give up Sacred Awareness to connect online.
Katie Raver is an NLP master trainer and organizer of the annual Free Day of NLP. Participants enjoy her stories and calming presence.
